The network will use this new evidence for policy recommendations and strategic plans, for health systems and guidelines to improve efficiency and care and to enlighten community-based support programs, education, driving and workplace legislation. This study was developed by a health service, Epilepsy Action, Epilepsy Society of Australia and the George Institute.
